Earlier today Walt Disney Imagineering filed a permit with Orange County, Florida, for “Project CY1899” at an address for Splash Mountain. The newly filed permit lists longtime builder Balfour Beatty Construction as the contractor and has an expiration date of June 30, 2024, for the work to be completed.
Balfour Beatty Construction is the regular contractor of choice for Walt Disney World Resort, having previously been listed on big projects such as the PLAY! Pavilion and the now-canceled Reflections A Lake Side Lodge, plus other large-scale projects at Walt Disney World Resort.
Disney has previously said that Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is set to replace Splash Mountain and is set to open in late 2024 at both Walt Disney World Resort and at Disneyland Resort.
